Préhisto Break ® Activities

  • Chauvet Pont d'Arc Cavern :

Situated in Southern Ardèche, the Chauvet Cave of Vallon-Pont-D’Arc was discovered on 18 December 1994 by Jean-Marie Chauvet, Éliette Brunel and Christian Hillaire. Thanks to its quality and its conservation of parietal paintings that have been in existence for 36 000 years, the unique prehistoric cavity was recently designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

This is the support of the first artistic and major exhibition which has seen to date.

A facsimile of 3000 square metres, the Cavern of Pont d’Arc, allows you to visit the Chauvet Cave Replicala. In a similar atmosphere within the real cavity, thanks to odours, humidity and darkness, you will be delighted by many paintings and engravings wich reprensent leons of the caverns, horses, mammoths or woolly rhinoceroses… Admire the quality of artistic work. This visit is making you for the feel of the real thing !

  • Aven of Orgnac cave :

Feel closer to the Earth and explore the Aven of Orgnac which is the only tourist site in the region of Rhône-Alpes labelled as "Grand Site de France®". You can submerge yourself into a breathtaking beauty. Between Entre fines draperies and crystallizations, the underground cathedral will show you its most stunning geological treasures ! Reaching a depth of 121 metres, the sound and light lead to emotions and leave place to the imaginary.

  • Cité of Prehistory museum:

The Cité of Prehistory museum is labelled "Musée de France©". In a new modern and decidedly structure which opened in February 2014, the visitor will discover 350 000 years of treasures dedicated to Prehistory. This staging mixes giant illustrations and interactive medias, videos, sound atmosphere, stuffed animals and everyday scenes which are recaptured. The visit combines tactile tools and multimedia materials with objects of this era (tools, weapons...). A surprising link which emphasizes Prehistory like you have ever seen before.
